A North Carolina congressman is accusing the NBA of hypocrisy for pulling their 2017 All-Star Game from North Carolina but pursuing preseason games in China.

“I think it’s going to end up harming them,” Representative Robert Pittenger explains to Breitbart Sports about the NBA’s stance. “There are millions of people who are disgusted with them. There’s nothing consistent, sincere, thoughtful, or reasonable about their approach.”

The second-term congressman told the NBA as much in a lauded letter. The Republican’s missive to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver reads in part:

“Last week, I met with constituents from China who outlined the Chinese government practice of forcefully harvesting vital organs as part of their oppression of religious minorities. Meanwhile, the NBA will start selling tickets for preseason games in China next week.

Is the NBA implying that China’s abhorrent violation of basic human rights is acceptable, but North Carolina saying men shouldn’t use the girl[s’] locker room is a bridge too far? What is the NBA’s true priority? The unmistakable hypocrisy is clear to me.”

The congressman’s letter received 2.5 million shares on Facebook, inspired columns, and received praise from his colleagues. But it prompts the NBA to reconsider neither the All-Star Game boycott of Charlotte nor the preseason hoops hoopla in China.

“The NBA made a major statement by withdrawing their All-Star Game from North Carolina,” Pittenger told Breitbart Sports about his rationale for writing the short letter. He further noted, “And I thought, ‘How disingenuous! What hypocrisy!’ The NBA is actively involved in pursuing their preseason games in China, with atrocious human rights problems ongoing for decades and not something new that just popped up.”

The North Carolina congressmen was absolutely right — the NBA’s hypocrisy was laughably apparent as they stood against a state whose lawmakers seek to restrict people from using a bathroom, changing area or locker room that contradicts their biological sex.

Meanwhile, they have continued their presence in communist China where the government forces abortions upon families with more than two children, prohibits certain organized religions and regularly censors its people’s speech — arguably all far worse abrogations of human rights than a law that says you have to go to the bathroom that correlates to your reproductive organs.

What’s even more ironic is that, unlike North Carolina, the Chinese government doesn’t even recognize same-sex marriage.

If the number of people who have shared the lawmaker’s letter on social media is any indication, Pittenger was right. Many people find the NBA’s decision a hypocritical attempt to insert its progressive agenda into sports.

Is there nothing safe from the cruel grip of political correctness these days? Let the lawmakers and voters in North Carolina determine what laws they enact, and let us enjoy our sporting events free of politics.

Do you agree with Pittenger that the NBA’s decision to pull out of North Carolina while maintaining a presence in communist China is hypocritical?

How many trannies even go to basketball games? This whole thing is absurd. But, that’s liberalism for you folks!
